David Goldbloom and Friends: In Conversation
In a series of candid conversations among old friends, former Chair of the Stratford Festival Board of Governors and Senior Medical Advisor of the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health David Goldbloom sits down with some leading advocates of our time to discuss their work and their lives, and maybe to reminisce a little about their university years. 

In Conversation with Wade Davis

Wade Davis is described as “a rare combination of scientist, scholar, poet and passionate defender of all of life’s diversity.” He has explored all over the globe, accumulating awards as an ethnographer, writer, photographer and filmmaker. Davis spent over three years in the Amazon and Andes as a plant explorer, living among fifteen indigenous groups while making extensive botanical collections. He was the series creator, host and co-writer of the ethnographic documentary series Light at the Edge of the World, which he shot in Rapa Nui, Tahiti, the Marquesas, Nunavut, Greenland, Nepal and Peru, and which aired in 165 countries.

He has authored over a dozen books since 1986 and lectured around the world. He has written for National Geographic, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, the Washington Post, The Globe and Mail, and numerous other international publications.
